Disclaimer: I am thankful to all those who have supported my own journey raising a child with RAD. Therapists, other parents, mental health professionals, books, documentaries, and blog posts have all contributed to my knowledge and understanding of this disorder and its treatment. The information contained in this book is based on my own experiences implementing commonly recommended strategies and techniques. This guide is intended to point parents in the right direction and cannot substitute for professional advice based on the unique circumstances of any particular family. That said, I have been in contact with hundreds of parents and found our experiences to be uncannily similar. On occasion, with permission, I anonymously share the stories and quotes of other parents. In all instances, any similarity to the stories or experiences of others is coincidental.
Please note that I call my son ‘Devon’ to protect his privacy. Whenever possible I use real names, but reserve the right to change identifying details and names when necessary to protect the privacy of others. Thank you for your understanding.
